Paper talk this morning that Celtic in talks to sign big Fraser on a PERMANENT deal, this would be great news if true but I would imagine, even if Southampton lower their asking price we are still talking £6m and then hope the big guy will accept our wage structure probably highest we could offer would be £30k weekly.


1.) 29 Jun 2020 10:29:09
So we could end up wi Big Fraser at one end and Wee Frazer at the other if recent speculation is correct?

2.) 29 Jun 2020 15:51:22
Every football club in the world is strapped for cash at the moment, otherwise Ryan Fraser would have signed for a PL side
Southampton more than most need cash as the owners are desparate to sell.
We have a good enough squad to win the first two rounds of the CL and the games at the start of the SPL remember the old firm game is unlikely to be early.
Therefore we should hold out as long as possible for FF if he really wants to return permently.
The money we saved from the players released could have ammounted to £1 million whist with southampton paying FF wages until the beginning of Sept. could be nearly £650,000.

3.) 29 Jun 2020 17:13:02
I think we seriously need to start getting active in the transfer window. this season is a big one and we need really good quality to add to the squad especially now we have lost 3 at the back.

4.) 29 Jun 2020 17:16:14
Juve just spent 72 mill on Arthur.

5.) 29 Jun 2020 18:54:41
I would like to think celtic have sounded out Fraser and mo about joining before trying to sign them.

6.) 29 Jun 2020 19:45:53
Regarding juve/ Arthur, that's just a Dodge on the ffp for Barcelona n prob them. Barcelona sell Arthur for £72M ( the accounts will see that as income) but they buy pjanic (from juve) for £60M but the accounts will show that as spread across a good few season, which will then allow them to buy more this season and stay within FFP rules.



11 Jun 2020 14:42:10
ED007 apparently big Fraser was at Lennoxtown today, should we read anything into this, maybe another loan deal on the cards?


{Ed007's Note - His loan deal runs until the end of June and as he wouldn't have been allowed to travel south during the lockdown he's probably back to get his health/fitness checks done like the rest of the squad.}

1.) 12 Jun 2020 06:31:52
Does anyone know if Elyounoussi was there as well then? Surely hisbloan deal would also be end of June.

{Ed007's Note - Elyounoussi's loan ended on May 31st.}

2.) 12 Jun 2020 13:04:44
Cheers Ed, hopefully we can get him back. Before his injury he was unplayable.

{Ed007's Note - If he hadn't got injured I'm sure he would have been a contender for POTY, Buster. I was really excited that we had got him on loan and I'd be happy if we could get him on another loan or even better as part of any deal for Ntcham.}

3.) 12 Jun 2020 17:53:24
exactly the player we need takes us to another level the guy is class.

4.) 12 Jun 2020 19:45:22
I think he is class Ed. Hopefully something can be sorted.

I'd be sad to see Ntcham leave, he is a baller on his day.

If it was up to me I'd tell all key players they are going nowhere until the end of next season.

{Ed007's Note - Unless Ntcham has changed his mind he'll be looking to move this summer. He's also in the same contract situation as Edouard with two years to go on his present deal so if he stays on his transfer value will drop a lot over the next year.}

5.) 12 Jun 2020 23:32:53
What would u say would be a fair deal for forster and moi to come in and ntcham to go. I would swap ntcham for forster and take moi on loan for a year free of charge. Sound reasonable?

6.) 13 Jun 2020 09:28:39
Would be good to get done. Ntcham is worth far more than Forster in my opinion. Money wise anyway. We aren't a club who would swap a sellable asset for someone with no resale value. Maybe 8m plus forster on loan for Ntcham.

{Ed007's Note - I think £8 -£10 million + Forster on a permanent deal would be a better deal, if it was only a loan I'd looking for £12 - £15 million in cash.}

7.) 13 Jun 2020 17:47:00
Don't think we would get any more than 10m for ntcham in the current circumstances, he's a talented player yes but he looks as if his mind is elsewhere and will want to move on, and let's face it it's much harder to replace forster than it is to replace ntcham.

We might not get re sale value on forster that's granted, but with his ability and presence there's a very good chance he'll be a massive boost to get us back into the champions league which as a result will bring in the big bucks.

I've mentioned it previously on here that if finance allowed the best case scenario for us would be to get him on loan for another season and sign him permanently next year when he has a year left on his deal, he's got at least another good 5 years left in him.

{Ed007's Note - What current circumstances?}

8.) 13 Jun 2020 21:18:17
The circumstances of the current market, where finances are tight and players values won't be as high as they usually are. That's what I mean when I say we would be lucky to get any more than 10m for ntcham just now with 2 years left on his deal, do you honestly think southampton or anybody else for that matter will pay over that for someone who's been in and out of the team for us?

{Ed007's Note - Why are finances tight - what has has happened that will have any serious affect on the Pub League's finances that come from their TV money?}

9.) 14 Jun 2020 00:17:14
It's not just about Tv money though is it? There's a general misconception that TV money down south is the saving grace and as long as there's tv deals teams will funds to splash, if tv money is so secure and they make enough of it, why did liverpool recently opt out of paying timo werners release clause, why have man Utd and spurs taken out loans if they have this TV money to rely on?

I'm not an expert but the point I'm making as due to the effect of this C.V. and the millions lost due to gate receipts, teams are probably less likely to buy players and pay the money if it can't be justified, every single players value is likely to take a drop which is the point I'm trying to make in saying we will be lucky to get over 10m for ntcham, even though i do think he's worth more in this pub league.



28 Aug 2019 12:07:53
It was reported this morning (Wednesday) that Peter Lawwell was thinking of spending £20m, yes TWENTY MILLION POUNDS, on strengthening Celtic, but he retreated to his darkened bedroom and waited until the panic attack stopped.




04 Aug 2019 13:05:27
Do not know the source of this story, but apparently Lennon has said Tierney faces another 4-6 weeks on the sidelines. Anybody else heard this.


1.) 04 Aug 2019 13:50:24
Everyone haha.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 14:01:00
Aye Tim.

3.) 04 Aug 2019 16:04:30
Posted a few ago about this injury, I had it about 15 years ago, I said he won`t play to new year and I`ll stick to that, very slow recovery .



27 Jul 2019 17:41:25
On the Izziguirre rumours

Rumour I heard was lennon's "contingincy plan" was IF Tierney was still our player and Lennon wanted to give him extra time to recover, hence the 6 month offer.

Make of it what you will.


1.) 27 Jul 2019 19:28:46
Would Boli not be his cover? them Hayes and Miller.
I think we will bring in Izzy When KT leaves which would be a total joke.

2.) 27 Jul 2019 20:32:02
It’s now being reported that no such offer was made to Izzy and it was all nonsense.

3.) 27 Jul 2019 20:32:04
It’s already been rubbishd. We have not offered Izzy a contract.

4.) 27 Jul 2019 21:35:20
Beat you to it by 2 seconds Kev 😂.

5.) 27 Jul 2019 22:02:37
People need to stop wetting them selves over every story in the press. It happens every year surely everyone has learnt this by now.

{Ed007's Note - Learnt by now...... 😂😂😂😂😂


6.) 27 Jul 2019 22:32:24
Learnt by now? It gets worse with every trophy we win.

We Celtic fans have the Power

With Lawwell and our Board it has always been about the money and milking us fans for as much as we were willing to pay, Pedro in particular benefitted from this.
The Board and Lawwell have arrogantly ignored the fans, but if we STOP buying season tickets and club merchandise they will soon get the message.
The majority of us fans do not need to turn up outside Celtic Park, just email club and withdraw all monies UNTIL we are listened to.
They can ignore us fans but NOT our financial support.


1.) 12 Jan 2021 10:05:42
Absolutely Tim no one should renew their season ticket until he's gone. Unfortunately the reality is it probably won't happen.

2.) 12 Jan 2021 10:13:31
I would sincerely hope and expect the largest supporters groups to be writing to Lawwell / Desmond saying exactly that Tim.

3.) 12 Jan 2021 10:22:20
The support have dismantled Boards in the past and I agree, Tim.
In any other time there would have been mass protests before, during and after games when this absolute farce had taken place.
However, there is absolutely no point in supporters putting themselves at risk, defying the law and being fined or worse, while the culprits hide away in an Ivory Tower counting the cash.
There is little chance of Lawell stepping down voluntarily, Desmond has been ominously absent and silent, while the manager stumbles from one crisis to another - with the complete backing of 'The Untouchables', who seem oblivious to any problems.
The only way in the current climate is to hit them where it hurts.
We can all accept (reluctantly) that our total dominance was going to come to an end at some point, but never in a million years could we have foreseen the incompetence, complacency and complete lack of common sense that has caused this total collapse.
They may point to the quadruple treble as vindication, but the negatives of a nightmare season far outweigh any positives IMO.

4.) 12 Jan 2021 11:25:01
Agree OAB2, 'all good things' but we've managed to contribute massively to our own downfall this season when we should have had everything in place to win 10IAR.

5.) 12 Jan 2021 12:56:17
As previously posted the failure lies in starting biggest season in living memory with players who don't want be there any longer. It's a fundamental error which has to go down as mismanagement. How we managed get into that situation is the problem Complacency? Arrogance? or both Last night was painful when laxalt gives stupid free kick I think we all knew what was coming. There's nowhere hide at moment we as fans hold all the power and may have start exercising those powers. Only thing board understand is profit loss and we hold all the aces in their all important balance sheets. Scunnered.

6.) 12 Jan 2021 15:58:52
The beginning of march fans should hold back renewals en masse and stand firm. We got change back in 94 without any social media to come together.



11 Jan 2021 14:43:22
Guys there is always a silver cloud behind the dark clouds.
Lennon CANNOT balls it up tonight as he is self isolating also the GB are going round to KEEP HIM LOCKED INSIDE.


1.) 11 Jan 2021 16:06:58
timbo ma auld mucker how your ye son.

2.) 11 Jan 2021 16:56:25
Wee might see Dembele Welsh Harper and Oko-flex tonight. Ed do you know (or BB what players never travelled? and was it a squad of 30 that went Away?

{Ed007's Note - I've no idea, Pud.}

3.) 11 Jan 2021 17:50:52
I’m sure Welsh is in the picture in the bar so I’m sure he went.



11 Jan 2021 12:53:50
A Complete Transplant

We Celtic fans used to laugh at the Sevco Board when they did all their stupid things, but now all the Clusterfluck things are being done by OUR OWN BOARD.


1.) 11 Jan 2021 13:03:00
Need removed and sharpish, im sick to the back teeth of phone calls and texts from my pals from the dark side laughing at the shambles we are creating week after week, any person in a job who put an entire team at risk by sanctioning a trip abroad in a C.V. would be sacked, I honestly hope everyone holds off their season tickets for 2021/ 22 campaign unless mass changes are made before the season gets anywhere near underway.

I've never seen it so bad, when in reality we should be head and shoulders above all in the Scottish game with the dominance we have had, blind sided by the mere cheap short term and not the long term.

Recruitment has been honking so get rid of Hammond as well.

2.) 11 Jan 2021 13:19:29
There's your problem in the first place. Pals from the dark side.

3.) 11 Jan 2021 13:48:04
Why care what an orc or Sevconian says. They Troglodytes are still trying to evolve.

4.) 11 Jan 2021 16:14:52
Simply put lads why have we gave them a chance to any ammunition, let along a mass abundance.

The standards at Celtic have drastically slipped, we had the easy road for too long and haven't capitalised on improving the team, and how we can still field a team putting Hibs players at risk is actually an embarrassment in itself.

Should of played the u19s, or just all those not involved in Dubai trip.



09 Jan 2021 10:38:09
Ok guys I am back punting again after New Year break there are two big races today at Chepstow and Kempton both with extra places.
Chepstow holds the postponed Welsh Grand National and Sky pay 6 places
Secret Reprieve is 7/ 2 fav
I also have two bigger priced horses
Bryony Frost has proved herself to be a winning jockey at these big meetings and she rides Yala Enki 11/ 1
Christmas in April is 10/ 1

Kempton 3.30 Sky pay 7 places
The White Mouse 11/ 1
Castle Robin 16/ 1.


1.) 09 Jan 2021 12:15:42
Welcome back Tim.
Christmas in April is trained by Colin Tizzard, whose daughter Kim Gingell passed away from cancer last May. The Welsh National is officially been run in her memory, would be a blessing for the Tizzard family if Christmas in April could win.
My money is already on.
I like the White Mouse at Kempton.

2.) 09 Jan 2021 13:10:48
Malika I don’t gamble but that Christmas in April jumped out at me for obvious reasons. What odds did you get?

3.) 09 Jan 2021 13:55:52
I've backed it.

4.) 09 Jan 2021 13:56:41
Thank's for tips Timalloy, good to have you back.

5.) 09 Jan 2021 15:01:36
11/ 1 JFP.



07 Jan 2021 10:05:05
With all our bad luck this season, you just KNOW what is coming next

The Dubai trip has drawn so much criticism and now the Government is talking about refusing entry to anyone not testing negative.
What are the odds of one or more of our squad being POSITIVE re entering scotland.


1.) 07 Jan 2021 12:46:35
The luck has certainly deserted us, but a lot has been brought on by ourselves, with self-inflicted 'damage' one way or another.
Right from the Bolingoli farce in August, a lot of our decisions have been questionable in the least. Let's hope for better luck, common sense and old fashioned, hard graft in 2021 and see what happens?

2.) 07 Jan 2021 12:50:33
This was always going to be an issue and the club will be a laughing stock if it happens Tim. it was too big a risk to take.

3.) 07 Jan 2021 13:15:51
We have been heading to where we are for years. A deid club over taking us is self inflicted. Lack if ambition, dreadful recruitment, a manager who persisted with players out if form. couldn't see Soro and Turnbull were the real deal. Pushed Duffy up as a striker after taking Griff off Never being prepared for the CL, playing with McGreggor st LB, going without a strike, is all down to Lawell and Desmond for where we are. These weeks coming we will see if they respond. Its long overdue. They can start by sacking everyone involved 8n recruitment. Our buy 5 players hope one is good needs to end.

4.) 07 Jan 2021 13:22:22
Id be interested on the legality of that Mally considering there is a travel corridor between Scotland and the UAE. To change the goalposts so to speak solely for Celtic would open up a can of worms.

5.) 07 Jan 2021 14:08:59
magicpole. a dead club that has spent over 80 mill in scottish football since it was formed 8 years ago any one spending 80 mill pound in Scottish football in that amount of time is going to challenge whether that is a dead club or east fife.

6.) 07 Jan 2021 15:09:05
We’ve spent over 90m in 9yrs.

7.) 07 Jan 2021 15:31:50
The difference is Celtic have brought in £130 million in transfers in the last 9 years.
The most profit Sevco have made on any player in their whole history is Windass.
And that profit wouldn’t cover 38 year old Defoe’s annual salary.
Last season Sevco received only £700k on player transfers.
Yet the SFA allow them to accumulate more debt than the other 41 Scottish clubs combined every single season.
If they had morals,
They would’ve spent that £80 million paying off creditors,
And brought Rangers FC out of their Liquidation process.
They could then go after a real and proper 55th title.

8.) 07 Jan 2021 17:40:39
exactly my point ryan they have spent the same amount of money as us basically and that's why they are challenging. as buzz stated they have ran at a loss and accumulated more debt than every club in the country combined. the question is how are they allowed to spend that if they do not make money were is the money coming from how can a company survive with debts of over 80 mill pound yet still spend big like there rivals who are cash rich and pull in mass profits

does this sound a bit familiar like the club before them debt after debt every season to gain success then it all came on top of them. there only punishment was play in the leagues below for 4 year everything is forgot about. there was nothing our club could have done for them to get were they are its the people who run Scottish football who are allowing them to get strong wile every other club has to spend within its means. be proud your a Celtic fan and our success was gained on share footballing ability and class and playing the game fairly.

Yes with the hard game on Thursday and the physical effort team put, allied to orrible plastic surface, I would freshen it up a bit. McGregor looked tired on Thursday give him a rest and play Nitcham who was only on for last few minutes. Also Hamed put in a shift bring Bauer back and put Taylor at left back, he should be used to playing on plastic pitches. Up front, I would take no chances with French Eddy and play Bayo.

Guys it was scary the two of us just literally lay in different rooms out of it, luckily the girls were great and both being level headed helped a lot, also as the eldest is now a fully trained pharmacist (literally took final exams July) she kept us all right. I would advise anyone to book a test, if nothing else just for your own peace of mind.
Only good thing about being laid up it spared me the gloating of my ex bears and The Suit.

@JFP1888 ONE sevvie contributed £55 and has let the whole world know, that is what they do boast about anything while we Tims simply try and help without wanting any back slapping as is proven by all the "anonymous" contributions.

PS maybe some Tim can contribute £826 to make it £1916 OR £798 to make it £1888 lol.
